The All-Natural Science of Holganix
Holganix is a 100% organic bionutritional product that promotes strong plant health, increasing the efficiency of nitrogen and phosphorus fertilization. Healthy plants are more able to resist the negative impact of plant pathogens and insects.
Holganix functions as a Biological Meta-Catalyst (a.k.a. bio-stimulant) by enabling plants to more efficiently uptake nutrients. Significantly lower quantities of synthetic fertilizers are needed to obtain the results previously only available through the use of traditional turf fertilization products. Because healthy plants are more able to resist disease and insect damage, using Holganix can result in decreases in the use of herbicides and pesticides. And best of all: fewer nitrates, phosphates, and other chemicals are released into the environment.
Holganix is a probiotic for the soil. Applications of Holganix add microorganisms to the soil. The product contains molasses, yeast and other ingredients as food sources that allow the building and maintenance of a functional, soil microbiology community.
Company research has demonstrated, and customer experience has validated, that Holganix application in combination with the trio of dicamba, 2,4-D and MCPP-P results in broadleaf weed control with lower rates of dicamba, 2,4-D and MCPP-P. The same results have been noted with Holganix in combination with prodiamine. In combination with Holganix, less prodiamine is required to control crabgrass. The synergy of Holganix with these herbicides results in less herbicides being applied to the soil.
Holganix begins with a proprietary, concentrated compost tea setting it apart from the competition. Unlike other bio-stimulants, it is a 100% plant-based, organic compost tea containing no animal or human by-products. This concentrated compost tea is teeming with beneficial, living microbiological organisms, however the contents of this patent pending product don't stop here. The compost tea (within Holganix) in conjunction with other bionutritional products contribute to improved plant life and allow for a massive reduction in the amount of synthetic fertilizer and pesticide inputs. Some of the key additional ingredients include:
Humic and Fulvic Acids:
These key ingredients support respiration of micro-biology, enhance seed germination, promote root development and absorption of nutrients and micro-nutrients.
Protozoa: Eat bacteria and releases nutrients to the soil.
Additionally, a dozen other botanical extracts are then layered into the product. Some include but are not limited to:
Yucca Extract - a natural spreader sticker, wetting agent and soil conditioner.
Nitrogen Fixing Bacteria- bacteria that in association with soil and certain plant roots, have the ability to make nitrogen in the atmosphere and soil available to plants.
In short, Holganix fosters robust plant growth while dramatically reducing the amount of chemicals necessary to provide customers with the healthy turf and plant results they expect—all while making the environment a better place for all of us. For an extended ingredient list click here.
